What to wear to Marine Corp ball ?

I need some advice on the type of dress to buy for this event. I've never been before and really want to dress appropriately. If any of you ladies have been what type of dress would you recommend? So far these two are the only ones that I even like and think would be appropriate. I'm not extremely girly and rarely dress up anymore, so I'm kinda lost here . Any help would be great.

thanks for the opinions guys. I'm leaning a bit more towards the white and black one because it seems a bit more classy looking to me. Hopefully there's a few people on this forum that have attended one of these functions that can give me some feedback as well. I'm wanting to surprise my date with my dress, so I can't really get his feedback. Not to mention he wanted me to wear a low cut red dress and neither of these fall into that catagory.

I think the black with white would be perfect. I'm no Marine, but that dress is both elegant and classy, yet has sharp clean lines. I know I like it!

Google is your friend... search marine corp ball and select images.

There you get a visual and go from there... but out of the 2 you posted, I like the second.

Okay, I've been to Marine Corps before... a few of them. I've never been to one dressy enough to wear either of those dresses, though. Those are true ball gowns (they look prom-ish).
You should find out the location and the agenda and go from there. Usually, though, it's a dinner and speeches, sometimes dancing afterwards. A cocktail dress (which is usually fitted, knee length, and classicly designed) with pumps is sufficient. It's too late in the Season to wear sandals to an event, however peep-toe is nice if you've had a pedi. Don't wear platforms or wedges as they are not as dressy. Depending on your body type, wear a dress that accentuates you- If RED looks good on you, I say go for RED!

Hope I helped... I am a girly girl and love dressing up all the time!
